I got married last October and for me, planning my wedding was a lot like designing a room, and being a designer, it was A LOT OF FUN! By thinking about it as a design project and starting with an initial idea, my husband and I were able to create a day that was inspired by the colors of the season and layered with our personality as a couple. Just like doing a room in your home, with a wedding, you can start off with an over all idea, style, or theme and then pick your colors, this will set the scene for everything else to fall into place. If your having trouble deciding the overall theme or style for your wedding, my biggest tip for you brides to be is to start off by thinking about significant or special moments in your relationship as a couple. This can be anything from a vacation, a date, or even a movie that you both love. From that you can take what you both like and create a personal style for your special day. Here are the "in" colors for the seasons of 2011 and some Styleboards from www.dessy.com using Pantone palettes for inspiration!
Enjoy :) Abbie
